Egg consumption and risk of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.

Regular intake of eggs may raise the odds of developing non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.

​This study examined the correlation between egg consumption and the development of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Researchers tracked the egg intake and assessed the non-alcoholic fatty liver disease risk of 951 subjects. They discovered that subjects who regularly consumed 2-3 eggs per week were 3.54 times more likely to develop non-alcoholic fatty liver disease than those who consistently ate less than 2 eggs per week. The findings of this study suggest that higher consumption of eggs is associated with greater risk of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
